An incredible souvenir book, lithographed by the HS Crocker Co., Inc., San Francisco, California. Copyright 1956 by Paramount Pictures Corporation. This is a magnificent series of Arnold Friberg paintings which lined the walls of Mr. DeMille's office during the preparations for shooting the film.
This commemorative book details in pictures the story of the Ten Commandments, the actors and their characters, Mr. DeMille and his assistant producer Henry Wilcoxon and music composer Elmer Bernstein. It also details the research regarding the background history of Ramses I and the ensuing story, the costumes and other details which were a feature of Mr. DeMille's productions.
In excellent condition with very little wear. The cover is not overly dry and is pliable. Only a little wear on the cover corner. No creases or dirt.
I would appreciate any idea of the value of such an item for mainly insurance purposes.
